Sound and Vision Media is honored to be working with the Museum of Science, Boston, MA on their Quantum Matters Competition 2018 and the NanoNerds – NanoDays project.
Our creative team worked closely with the Museum staff throughout the Quantum Matters Competition production timeline to film and edit a series of videos.
Four young scientists compete to give the best (and most-entertaining) 3-minute explanation of a significant aspect of quantum technology to a family audience at the Museum of Science, Boston. Sponsored by the Museum of Science and the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials; funded by the National Science Foundation (Award No. 1231319). All rights reserved.
Quantum Matters Science Communication Competition Finals
For the NanoNerds / NanoDays project and Quantum Matters Competition edits, we provided pre and post-production, three cameras, all audio equipment and the necessary support staff to ensure an engaging final product and a smooth process.

Jessica Pointing – 2018 Quantum Matters™ Science Communication Competition
Harvard senior Jessica Pointing takes just 3 minutes to explain how quantum algorithms can organize quantum bits (qubits) for solving complex problems.
Srujan Meesala – 2018 Quantum Matters™ Science Communication Competition Finals
In just 3 minutes, Harvard graduate student Srujan Meesala explains to a family audience how quantum bits (qubits) can deliver much greater computational power than ordinary computer bits.
Rebecca Engelke – 2018 Quantum Matters™ Science Communication Competition Finals
In just 3 minutes, Harvard graduate student Rebecca Engelke explains to a family audience how researchers are learning to control electrons at the smallest scales using the topological properties of 2D materials.
Joseph Yoon – 2018 Quantum Matters Science Communication Competition Finals
In just 3 minutes, MIT graduate student Joseph Yoon explains to a family audience how researchers are developing tiny lightsaber-like switches for use in quantum computers.
More About the Quantum Matters Competition 2018:
In Winter/Spring of 2018, we put out a call to quantum researchers – in 2-3 minutes, explain a concept related to their area of research in quantum science or technology, and how it might matter to us in the future.
